Australian Surgeons Remove Patient’s Body Part In Shocking Error

In a shocking example of medical negligence, doctors at the Northern Beaches Hospital in Australia removed the wrong body part during surgery on a male cancer patient.

The patient was forced to undergo a corrective operation after surgeons mistakenly removed the wrong part of his bowel.

A spokesperson for the hospital’s health care provider said: “The patient and their family have been provided full disclosure and NBH is supporting their ongoing care and treatment.”

Northern Beaches Hospital, a 488-bed hospital, was opened in October last year and has since been struggling with a shortage of essential drugs, medical equipment, and industrial disputes.

A parliamentary inquiry into the matter is underway.
